What's up everyone?

Post by skool u » Wed Apr 18, 2018 12:17 pm

Just saying hi to those fellow diecast collectors, especially those that collect 1/24 scale. It know it's a bit of an oddball size but I've come to far and can't turn back now. I have just over 600 models ranging from muscle to exotic and import to domestic and have endeavored now to create diorama sets for them. Here's a few shots of my display cases with the cars I have. It house most of the collection which I have now put into colour coordinated cases. I used to have them with multiple colors but this loos much much better in my opinion:

I will definitely fill out the form but I will need to take some high resolution photos as the ones I've uploaded are pretty low quality. I only have my S7 phone and HD mode so will that be enough?

That's an awesome collection!

Did you install separate lights per level in the displaycases? Looks very well lit!

Yes sir. Had to wire up lighting for each shelf which was somewhat of a pain because they are glass and I had to use a combination of two sided tape and glue. The smaller shelves are not as well lit as the wider shelf but it still gives a bit of light so you can see the cars.
